These records are kept to ensure a direction to your sessions and continuity in service. Your personal information will be collected, used and stored as necessary to ensure the provision of high-quality services and in accordance with the requirements of relevant privacy laws.

They will not be shared except with respect to the limits to confidentiality. Should you wish to have your records released, you are required to sign a release of information, which specifies what information is to be released, and to whom. If you have any questions about your records and privacy please contact me- Kelsey Feinstein.
